Different Kind Of Metal Roofing Sheets We Use
They are four different kinds of metal roofing systems we use for our Calgary Alberta and surrounding area clients. We use these for residential properties or commercial buildings. Snap lock profile, metal tile, 9/36 Profile (Barn Style) and Metal Shingles.
Snap Lock Profile (hidden fasteners) – Snaplock is a profile that snaps down on one side and is screwed down through its fabricated pleated edge on the other. Snaplock must be installed on a solid substrate such as plywood. 1″ wide profiles ensure screws are covered.
Metal Tile (exposed fasteners) – Made of German steel sheets with D-Matt coating. The lightweight of these tiles, approximately 4.5kg per 1sq.m of metal sheets, is their particular advantage. It is one of the most light-weight roofing materials, which is an advantage because it does not require a heavy roof support structure and will not affect the existing structure of a building.
9/36 Profile (Barn Style & exposed fasteners) – Made of German steel sheets these tiles are lightweight which will not affect the existing structure of a building.
Metal Shingles (hidden fasteners) – Metal tile panels are made from sheet metal which is zinc-plated on both sides, with several protective layers, which ensures durability. It is one of the most light-weight roofing materials, which is an advantage because it does not require a heavy roof support structure.
Frequently Asked Metal Roofing Calgary Questions
What about the noise?
Usually, metal roof sheeting is installed over plywood or an existing roof. The noise generated by hail or rain would be similar to other roofing materials. The myth of a noisy steel roof comes from barns that were built with steel roofing installed on open framing and with no insulation.
Will metal roofing reduce my home insurance cost?
You will need to contact your insurance company to see if there are any potential cost savings that may be available to you by switching to metal roofing. In some cases having a metal roof on your home will reduce your insurance cost.
How will a metal roof stand up to extreme weather?
The weather in Calgary Ab can be pretty brutal during the cold winter months, but don’t worry metal roofing can withstand decades of abuse from extreme weather like heavy snow, hail storms. high winds and even wildfires. Our metal roofing products can withstand winds up to 150km/h. Metal roofing is perfect for locations that see heavy snow because it sheds snow fast, which protects the structural integrity of your roof.
Is a metal roof environmentally responsible?
Not only metal roofs are great for residential properties but they are also great for the environment. The recycled content of the steel in a metal roof is about 28% and is completely recyclable at the end of its lifespan. This makes metal roofing a green building material.
